Something New : Five New Bridal Styles
Good Morning Everyone! Hope your Tuesday morning is going wonderful so far and you're enjoying a delightful cup of coffee as you read this morning's dose of wedding goodness! If you're new to The Cafe, my name is Alisha and I stop by every Tuesday and Friday to share some inspiration, planning ideas, or pretty color palettes. I'm extremely excited to share this post with you all today! I've been having so much fun with it. Basically, as I have been scouring blogs, magazines, and photographer's websites for the past year or so, there are always some weddings I see where what sticks out to me the most is the Bride's overall style and look. You know, the ones where you stop and think: 'This Bride is beyond gorgeous!!!' One thing I've come to realize is that there are millions of beautiful brides... everyone looks great on their big day! But the ones that make you go WOW are those who accomplish incorporating their own personal style into their look. Don't just wear a white dress- make it you! Don't hide your personality on your big day for the sake of tradition, let that inner beauty shine through! Today I'm going to share with you five beautiful ladies who did just that. I hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoyed making this post! :-)

Style #1 - Girly Glam 
This flawless style shoot by Jose Villa & Jill La Fleur has stuck in my mind since I first saw it on Style Me Pretty. I think my favorite thing about her look is her makeup, by Team Hair & Makeup. That rosy glow is perfect for achieving a look of wedding day bliss! And it's still pretty natural, letting her gorgeous smile and bright eyes take the spotlight. Also, loving that the feather hair accessory by Lo Boheme is definitely a statement - but such a great way to add color and a little style! It goes so well with the poppy bouquet... add a little rhinestone detail on the gown (not too much) and you've got the perfect girly-glam look. 




Style #2 - Classic & Timeless 
This lovely wedding was posted about a week ago on TBC and I had come across it earlier also... The classy beauty of this lovely Bride completely struck me... and so did the Monique Lhuillier gown. Good gosh. How gorgeous is the silhouette, and the back, and the sleeves, and everything!? I've been having dreams about this dress! Nkechi (the Bride) kept it classy, adding the adorable bird cage veil which complimented the gown perfectly. Any more accessories would overdo it, but Nkechi dressed like a pro. PS. what a cute couple... 


Style #3 - Romantic Boho
The perfect boho bridal look to me is a not-so-simple combination of Hippie Chic & Romance. This lovely Bride, Stephanie pulled it off wonderfully. The sweet, ethereal gown paired with a bouquet of hand-picked wildflowers is "romance" in every sense of the word. Also, the very unique veil that almost doubles as a train is such an angelic look. She looks great. The effect your going for in this rustic type of wedding is natural, lovely, feminine... you don't want to look like you're playing dress-up. The key is to look even more lovely against a humble background such as a farm, barn, field... the boho look wouldn't hold up in a grand ballroom. Another tip: for the best wedding photos, just add a field of wildflowers and a hot husband... you really can't go wrong ;-)


Style #4 - Natural Beauty
You know who you are. You lovely ladies whose morning routine involves a shower, and that's it! ...And somehow you still manage to look like a million bucks! This look is dedicated to you. Julie, this lovely auburn-haired bride, shows us how it's done with her hair in natural waves and the perfect amount of makeup to accentuate her pretty eyes and flawless skin. She wore a simple, strapless gown (that gets bonus points for having pockets!) and she added a thin little belt to accentuate her waistline. I'm a big fan of skinny belts, I think they can completely tie an outfit together! Julie was a genius for keeping her look sweet and simple, and then carrying a unique bouquet to make it all pop. 


Style #5 - French Elegance
This beautiful Bride, Anri, managed to create a gorgeous wedding inspired by French elegance, even though the wedding took place in South Africa! Anri did a great job of pulling together an elegant, glamorous look. Her sequined Jenny Packham dress took center stage. The high neckline in front balances out the dramatic keyhole back, for a completely chic look, and it really flattered her thin frame. Pulling her hair back out of her face really let the dress be as glamorous as it was meant to be. I think all the pictures of her getting ready just really show her look and style run more than skin deep. Classy lady. 


 Thanks so much for reading! I hope these photos inspired some of you Brides who are still planning their "look" for the big day! Leave us a comment below and tell us which style is your favorite, and why... 

Wishing you all a lovely day!     ~ A
